Allowing both, would mean that information is kept in a redundant
manner (as in your example). I think it is hard to keep track of both
representations at the same time that they are equivalent.

The formalised decomposition is in my opinion the better way of
presenting the data because it is the more structured and formalised
way. If someone "needs" the literal string it is not a big thing to get
it out via a script - again because the decomposition is very a
structured way of presentation.
